After the enrollment, all the students must submit their study plan, through “Percorsi formativi/GOMP/INFOSTUD”. One cannot take exams which are not included in the study plan, referring to the optional courses (see NOTE 1). The exams, which can be chosen, refer to the academic year (A.Y.) in which the student enrolled in the master course for the first time. The study plan and the possible modifications to it must be accepted BEFORE taking the exams. The study plan of students who enrolled after transferring their career from another master course either at Sapienza or in another University, will be filled in by the secretary office soon after the recognition of the credits which have already been acquired.
The study plan can be submitted during specific time windows (usually in mid November and during the first 15 days of March of the following year). The next time window is from December 10th to December 31st, 2017. Students who did not get their Bachelor Degree in Sapienza (Laurea Triennale in Ingegneria Informatica ed Automatica) will be called by the secretary office in order to provide with further information on how to fill in the study plan.
NOTICE: IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO FILL IN/MODIFY THE STUDY PLAN IN OTHER PERIODS OUTSIDE THE DEDICATED TIME WINDOWS.
For the students of the Master Degree in Engineering in Computer Science, the study plan must be filled in in the following items:
1) The choice of the exams related to the section CARATTERIZZANTI E SPECIALISTICI (according to the course list as specified in the “Manifesto degli studi” of A.Y. of enrollment)
2) The choice of the exams related to the section AFFINI ED OPZIONALI (according to the course list as specified in the “Manifesto degli studi” of A.Y. of enrollment)
3) The choice of the A SCELTA / “free choice” courses.
During the second year, it is possible to modify the study plan during the same time window in which first year students are requested to fill it in. The study plan can be approved only once per academic year. Therefore, once the study plan has been submitted and approved, it cannot be changed before the next academic year and the student is supposed to complete the exams as indicated in the approved study plan. Furthermore, if changes are made in the following years, students must refer to the Course List (=Manifesto degli Studi) of the academic year of their enrollment.
Before filling in the study plan, students are invited to contact the Professor-in-Charge-of-Study-Plan (see below) during his office hours in the following cases:
- The student wants to choose as a "free choice" a course which is not related to our master courses (Engineering in Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, Control Engineering, Data Science, Cyber Security).
- The student already took an exam during his/her bachelor which is anyway mandatory in the current master course.
NOTES ON HOW TO FILL IN THE STUDY PLAN:
1- Students must always insert their motivations (in the section “Note”) about the choices of the “free choice” courses.
2- Second year students who modify their study plan must always insert (in the section “Note”) both the exam they want to replace and the exam they want to choose as replacement and, in addition, provide the motivations for the change.
If motivations are missing or not given as above required, the study plan will be automatically rejected.
The Professor-in-Charge for the Study Plans of the Academic Year 2017/2018 is Professor Massimo Mecella.
According to the University rules, students can only take the exams listed in the study plan they fill in when they first enroll in the Master’s course. This means that a first year student can only take the exams which are selected for his/her first year, while he/she cannot take any exam planned for the second year. Please note that the “free choices” exams (12 credits chosen by the students) belong to the second year, thus a student enrolled in the first year cannot take any of them (and therefore will not be able to register in Infostud). Specifically, first year students will not be able to register for an exam on Infostud which is not planned for the first semester of the first year (= core courses, mandatory for all students) and before having submitted the study plan and received the approval.
